Interesting exhibits of the local culture. Worth thirty minutes to an hour if you are in the cental area.

Another great building with good information but in this case, even when under glass/plastic cases, they are covered with years of dust and dirt so you lose the color, the texture, the beauty of each piece. What would it take to open each case, clean up, then reseal them properly so the pieces stay pristine longer?

The guards are a bit over-zealous and are on your heels the whole way around which gets a bit tedious after a while.

Love that they have replicas you can touch (on any of the red pedestals). Great idea for kids and people who cannot see too well.

From pre-Hispanic archeology to vice regal paintings.

On the second floor is located The Capilla de Aranzazú 1586. A beautiful small chapel.

Some websites say it closes at seven pm but it closes at six pm.

This is in part of the old convent of San Francisco, the Museum has a nice small collection of objects, but for me the high light is the Capilla de Aranzazú, which for those of us that like the Baroque, is a fascinating place to visit.

Nice little museum with some pre-Colombian artifacts from around the area and a stunningly beautiful chapel on the second floor. Free on Sundays.

Decent museum, free on sunday and wasn't too packed. Not a big place so it will be a quick visit. I probably spent 20 minutes but I rush through museums fairly quickly.

Of course if you are here as a tourist and visit museums, churches and chapels , etc. this is a must.
What is different from other museums is that there are several fake(replicas) pieces you can touch through all the museum

I've been here twice so far. The museum is housed in a former Franciscan convent, the focal point being a stunning private chapel at the top of a sunny staircase.
In the downstairs area are displays of precolombian artifacts from SLP and other parts of México. There are many touchable exhibits which is great, considering most museums want visitors to keep their hands off. Signage is all in Spanish. The guards in the downstairs area were eager and happy to point out interesting features and information and very accommodating to questions.
The museum's size is comfortable, easy to roam around in. Very do-able and in a nice area of downtown.

There is a variety of exhibits from ancient modern, but all have counterparts that are touchable. The chapel is unusual and very colourful. also unusual: there is an elevator to take us oldsters up to the chapel.

As a visitor was curious to learn a bit more about this colonial city. It's worth visiting and it only takes about an hour to see it. Pity they barely have any information in English.

This was a slightly better than average regional museum, fairly well organized, a block away from Parque San Francisco, in another restored monastery. But
upstairs, Whoa! The lavish gold and aqua private chapel Capilla de Aranzazu, in high Churrigueresque style. Don't you just love surprises?!
